Section [ edit ]

This is the master of a series in progress that is being modeled after the Greek myth series. See for example Template:Greek myth (sea). Some of the sub-regions may require a list of deities to complete underneath this master such as in Template:Fertile Crescent myth (Mesopotamia).

The Fertile Crescent page could modify this master for a more interesting template or could expand to include a discussion of religion in the region, unless there is already a page doing that that I have not yet found.

The reason for a template for all the mythologies of the Fertile Crescent is that they share many of the same gods, yet most of them are too small or have few Wikipedian articles on them to be grouped by topic. Grouping them by geography is shows their relationships. Also, this template is, like the Greek template, to have a section at the top for general topics and a section at the bottom for the list of specific gods within a certain topic. This is necessary to allow for expansion of the template without it becoming too bulky. Castanea dentata 01:11, 28 December 2005 (UTC)

  • What does this have to do with Egypt? --Brunnock 16:33, 28 December 2005 (UTC)
Nothing, unless you include Egypt with the Fertile Crescent. Egypt is not in the box unless you want to add it. Castanea dentata 18:54, 28 December 2005 (UTC)
